Hospice of Chesterfield County held a reception May 4 recognizing the agency’s recent acquisition of Springhill Assisted Living and the retirement of Springhill’s previous owners and founders, Robbie and Julia Robertson.
The Robertsons built Springhill in 2000 so that elderly adults could receive assisted living care in their community. Since that time, 124 residents have called Springhill home.
“Julia and I are thrilled to pass the baton to the capable, loving hands of our friends at Hospice. Who better to continue this ministry than a local organization with years of experience in providing excellent care to the citizens of this area?” said Robbie Robertson.
Springhill is licensed for and built as an assisted living facility and will continue to be run as such by Hospice of Chesterfield County. Hospice of Chesterfield County is the only local nonprofit hospice and has been providing care since 1993.
“Hospice of Chesterfield County is excited about the opportunity to expand our mission through the operation of Springhill,” Hospice Board President Marion Anderson said. “We look forward to continuing to provide the loving care the Robertsons have been providing.”
